“Don’t worry about what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come alive and do that,
because what the world needs is people who have COME ALIVE.”
1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,
as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
The most popular word among the youth we hear nowadays is “Boring.”
It’s not just the young. The older ones complain how MONOTONOUS life is… That it’s another Manic Monday, can’t wait for Friday… How they wish it’s long vacation, etc. It’s weekdays again and LIFE IS SO DULL.
These people are nuts, grumbling about a life of their choice. It’s not the situation that is boring. It is them. They are boring people.
I really got a problem with people who say “Boring.”
They lack imagination and passion. Their creativity level is entirely zero. People who say life is DULL are those that think the world owes them more entertainment. People who say, “Oh just killing the time,” are nitwits. OUR ENTIRE LIFETIME IS NOT ENOUGH FOR NEW DISCOVERIES… THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE… TO TASTE… TO LEARN… TO EXPERIENCE.
William Arthur Ward wrote:
If you are wise, you will empty yourself into adventure.
Empty your days of the search for security; fill them with a passion for service.
Empty your hours of the ambition for recognition; fill them with the aspiration for achievement.
Empty your moments of the need for entertainment; fill them with the quest for creativity.
“Your greatest contribution to helping other people
live their destiny is for you to live your own.”
– Alan Cohen
When you LIVE YOUR DESTINY, you become a FORCE OF LIFE.
You will COME ALIVE. And everything you touch COMES ALIVE.
And the most exciting thing is, your life will never be colourless, uneventful, bland, or uninteresting.
